We were so sad to see that Nastia Liukin didn't make the U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Team this year, regardless of her place on it in 2008.
She just fell short.
It isn't keeping her down, though!
Here's what she said:
"Thank you to the 18,000 people that gave me a standing ovation tonight. I will remember this moment for the rest of my life. Overwhelmed by the love and support. I would have never imagined anything like this … Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Most importantly … Thank u to my parents & special people in my life that always kept me calm, believed in me & shown their love & support."
It's such a bummer, Nastia, but at least you're taking the news like a real pro!
We LOVE sportsmanship!
You gave it a great try!
The team this year includes: Gabby Douglas, Jordyn Wieber, Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney and Kyla Ross.
